Independence Day Means Celebrating Our Ability to Protect Ourselves
Happy Early Independence day. For me, Independence Day Means Celebrating Our Ability to Protect Ourselves from threats foreign or domestic. I was able to get off work early today and sneak off to the indoor range with my two favorites. My baby Sig P365 and Big Brother .460 Rowland.

Was fantastic day. Range all to myself. I was way too busy with work last year to get out more than once. Now I have a new range 2 miles away and will get out much more.

Not fantastic targets, but not too bad for only shooting twice in the last year. (Well, three if you count the watermelon video :)  Definitely need some more practice to get back into the groove! I just may have to get out again this weekend!

How do you celebrate your freedom or protect your STEEM?

Nice shooting @ksteem! I've not had a chance to go to the range in nearly a year but this makes me want to get out again soon. It's a great stress reliever for me to focus in on my target and just be in the moment.

I'd love to encourage you to use #sportstalk on your sports related posts so you can earn SPORTS tokens in addition to Steem. You can also view all #sportstalk posts by viewing them on sportstalksocial.com.

Thanks for the comments and lead @patrickulrich. I'll give the #sportstalk a look and try it out. I had almost forgotten how a range day puts a smile on my face that lasts for at least a couple days!
